    Its not too hard if you go to a beauty supply and get some acidtone and a flat nail brush.

  • I wouldn't cut your cuticles I would get a cuticle oil and push them back. when they cut mine I always get hang nails.
    and filing is easy.

  • It is easy to cut your cuticles you just have to be sure to put your fingers in a dish of warm water first so the cuticles get saturated and enlarged so it is easier to see what you are doing. Buy a cuticle cutter too. I don't do fake nails but I do manicures on my own and I give my husband man manicures by caring for his cuticles, cutting and shaping his nails.
